Colours of Wildlife
The world is full of amazing creatures that swim, climb, run, and fly. Perusing this lavishly-illustrated book, one gets the feeling that the artist knows them all personally. There are huge animals, like the elephant and savannah buffalo. There are tiny ones, like the owlet, tree frog, and four-toed elephant shrew. And of course, there are the mischievous meerkats. Some are magnificent, others endearing. The art is awe-inspiring. Where photography focuses on the moment, painting forces us to look deeper into the nature of these creatures - to experience visually the textures of fur and feathers, the smoothness of skin. Willem's paintings establish connection. 'Colours of Wildlife' isn't all about the paintings. The artist supplies background knowledge about each species, and their relations with humans. We learn which species are safe for now, and which are endangered. Willem lives near many of these animals, and he has real stories to tell about them.

Arabic Script in Motion: A Theory of Temporal Text-based Art
This book is a pioneering study of temporal typography and time-based calligraphic art written in the Arabic system of writing. Inspired by the innate qualities of Arabic script as well as certain practices in Islamic calligraphy and contemporary calligraphic art, the book devises five broad categories of temporal behaviors for Arabic characters in time-based media. It goes onto expand the vocabulary used to describe Arabic script's appearance in time-based media and proposes a theory to help artists, practitioners, and theoreticians push the boundaries of temporal text-based art. Furthermore, it tackles questions of legibility and readability, and seeks to understand how temporality of Arabic text influences the creation of meaning. This book will therefore appeal not only to animators, designers, and artists, but also to commentators and scholars who deal with temporal text-based art written in Arabic script.

The Crafty Animator: Handmade, Craft-based Animation and Cultural Value
This collection is a study of the value of craft as it can be understood within the study and practice of animation. The book reconsiders the position of craft, which is often understood as inferior to `art', with a particular focus on questions of labour in animation production and gendered practices. The notion of craft has been widely investigated in a number of areas including art, design and textiles, but despite the fact that a wide range of animators use craft-based techniques, the value of craft has not been interrogated in this context until now. Seeking to address such a gap in the literature, this collection considers the concept of craft through a range of varying case studies. Chapters include studies on experimental animation, computer animation, trauma and memory, children's animation and silhouette animation among others. The Crafty Animator also goes some way to exploring the relationship craft has with the digital in the context of animation production. Through these varied discussions, this book problematizes simplistic notions about the value of certain methods and techniques, working to create a dialogue between craft and animation.

Representing the Experience of War and Atrocity: Interdisciplinary Explorations in Visual Criminology
This book explores how the experience of war and related atrocities tend to be visually expressed and how such articulations and representations are circulated and consumed. Each chapter of this volume examines how an image can contribute to a richer understanding of the experience of war and atrocity and thus they contribute to the burgeoning field of the criminology of war . Topics include the destruction of war in oppositional cultural forms - comparing the Nazi period with the ISIS destruction of Palmyra - and the visual aesthetics of violence deployed by Jihadi terrorism. The contributors are a multi-disciplinary team drawn mainly from criminology but also sociology, international relations, gender studies, English and the visual arts. This book will advance this field in new directions with refreshing, original work.

Cambridge Library Collection - Art and Architecture: The Art of Decorative Design
Christopher Dresser (1834-1904) was arguably the first British industrial designer, and this 1862 work was his most influential book. He worked in a variety of media, from wallpaper and textile design to metalwork and ceramics, but was also a botanist, and his two professorial roles in fine and ornamental arts, at the South Kensington Museum and the Crystal Palace, included the teaching of botany. Unlike William Morris, Dresser believed that good design could and should be mass-produced by industrial methods, so that it became affordable to all classes. He describes here how decorative ornament should be used in design, the importance of taking inspiration from natural (usually plant) models, and issues of proportion, balance and gradation. The book, which encouraged the rising middle classes to decorate their homes themselves, is highly illustrated: the colour plates can be viewed online at www.cambridge.org/9781108080408, by clicking on the 'Resources' button.

Fireflies
Generally known for his installation work encompassing sculpture, video and soundscapes, Fireflies focuses wholly on Parreno's lesser-known drawings. The drawings collected here showcase a delicate, personal touch, as they were created while Parreno was ill with cancer and were sent to his friends. In Parreno's drawings the fireflies' light is often created by an absence of darkness or pigment. This striking contrast perfectly encapsulates the bioluminescent glow emanating from the insect's abdomen. The book is edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist, artistic director of the Serpentine Galleries. An interview with the artist by Obrist and an essay by Belgian philosopher Vinciane Despret accompany the works.

Painting Publics: Transnational Legal Graffiti Scenes as Spaces for Encounter
Public art is a form of communication that enables spaces for encounters across difference. These encounters may be routine, repeated, or rare, but all take place in urban spaces infused with emotion, creativity, and experimentation. In Painting Publics, Caitlin Bruce explores how various legal graffiti scenes across the United States, Mexico, and Europe provide diverse ways for artists to navigate their changing relationships with publics, institutions, and commercial entities. Painting Publics draws on a combination of interviews with more than 100 graffiti writers as well as participant observation, and uses critical and rhetorical theory to argue that graffiti should be seen as more than counter-cultural resistance. Bruce claims it offers resources for imagining a more democratic city, one that builds and grows from personal relations, abandoned or under-used spaces, commercial sponsorship, and tacit community resources. In the case of Mexico, Germany, and France, there is even some state support for the production and maintenance of civic education through visual culture. In her examination of graffiti culture and its spaces of inscription, Bruce allows us to see moments where practitioners actively reckon with possibility.

Paul Nash: Another Life Another World
Following the sell-out 2014 publication `Paul Nash: Watercolours 1910 - 1946' this revised and expanded edition has been published to coincide with an exhibition of Paul Nash's work in New York, May 2019. The fully illustrated catalogue includes major oils as well as watercolours, prints and photographs and examines one of Britain's most acclaimed artists of the twentieth century. Written by David Boyd Haycock, author of 'Paul Nash' (Tate Publishing, 2002) and the hugely successful 'A Crisis of Brilliance' (Old Street Publishing, 2009), the catalogue charts the whole of Nash's career from his early days before studying at the Slade School of Art, through to his time at the Western Front during World War I as a serving officer and then an official War Artist, and to his mature Surrealist-era works. In this centenary year that marks the official end to the First World War, the publication reflects on Nash's unprecedented impact on British Art and the lingering contemporary power of his works today. This selection of works is drawn from major museum and private collections, and includes several hitherto unseen works, spanning all the major genres and themes present in Nash's diverse career.

This fascinating 1873 publication is a version of the catalogue produced by the Wedgwood company almost one hundred years earlier, in 1787. Its editor, the feminist writer Eliza Meteyard (1816-79), was a friend of the Wedgwood/Darwin families, and had published a two-volume biography of Josiah Wedgwood in 1865. She explains in her preface that the sixth (and last) such catalogue of Wedgwood's lifetime, 'having been long out of print ... is thus verbally reprinted, without other alteration than a few press corrections and the insertion of various illustrations from the Life of Wedgwood'. A brief history of the catalogues is provided, followed by a long list of the cameos, intaglios, figurines, vases and dinner, tea and coffee services which the firm offered. Wedgwood also advised on how to form a collection of cameos, which are listed by subject: sets containing Greek gods, or kings of France, or popes were available.

Cambridge Library Collection - Art and Architecture: Reminiscences of Rosa Bonheur
Regarded as the foremost animal painter of her time and the most famous female artist of the nineteenth century, Rosa Bonheur (1822-99) is best known for her works Ploughing in the Nivernais and The Horse Fair. She showed an early talent for drawing people and animals, and quickly determined that art would be her career, visiting the abattoirs of Paris and performing dissections in order to better understand animal anatomy. Through her independent spirit, successful career and unconventional lifestyle she made men and other women aware of what could be achieved. Of the various sources of biographical detail about Bonheur, this 1910 publication is among the most authoritative. Incorporating translated letters between the artist and her friends and family members, it provides invaluable first-hand evidence of her approach to painting and her views on the art world more widely. The work is illustrated throughout with many fine engravings.

The Other Side of Silence The Far Side of Time: The Sculpture of Hib Sabin
Hib Sabin's wood sculpture is focused mainly on animal imagery - raven, owl, bear, coyote, mountain lion and hawk - as it relates to human nature and the human condition. The roots of his sculpture are to be found in Shamanism, the mythologies of world cultures and more recently in modern poetry and philosophical movements such as Existentialism. The subject matter of his early carvings are of Shamanic ritual implements: healing wands, soul retrievers, talking sticks, dancing sticks and especially masks. Gradually, after extensive travels across the globe, he began to explore a number of the world's rich mythologies and his subject matter moving beyond the realms of Shamanism, but always using the prism of animal imagery. Since 2008, his inspiration has come from many sources, including European Existentialist theory, and modern poets such as Leonard Cohen, Ted Hughes, T.S. Eliot, Robert Frost and Dylan Thomas. The structure of the book is broken down into three segments: the exploration of Hib's roots in Shamanism; the expansion of his vision into a larger more global mythic universe; and an analysis of the themes that have driven his creative process in recent years.

Art and the Challenge of Markets Volume 2: From Commodification of Art to Artistic Critiques of Capitalism
Art and the Challenge of Markets Volumes 1 & 2 examine the politics of art and culture in light of the profound changes that have taken place in the world order since the 1980s and 1990s. The contributors explore how in these two decades, the neoliberal or market-based model of capitalism started to spread from the economic realm to other areas of society. As a result, many aspects of contemporary Western societies increasingly function in the same way as the private enterprise sector under traditional market capitalism. This second volume analyses the relationships of art with contemporary capitalist economies and instrumentalist cultural policies, and examines several varieties of capitalist-critical and alternative art forms that exist in today's art worlds. It also addresses the vexed issues of art controversies and censorship. The chapters cover issues such as the culturalization of the economy, aesthetics and anti-aesthetics, the societal benefits of works of art, art's responsibility to society, artivism , activist arts as protest and capitalism-critical works, and controversies over nudity in art, as well as considering the marketisation of emerging visual arts worlds in East Asia. The book ends with the a concluding chapter suggesting that even in today's marketized and commercialized environments, art will find a way. Both volumes provide students and scholars across a range of disciplines with an incisive, comparative overview of the politics of art and culture and national, international and transnational art worlds in contemporary capitalism.

Van Gogh and Britain
Van Gogh and Britain at Tate Britain will be the first major exhibition both to explore the impact of British culture on Vincent van Gogh and to trace the introduction of his art into Britain and its legacy in the works of British painters. Published to accompany the show, this lavishly illustrated publication illustrates fifty van Gogh paintings, and traces the story from the artist's obscure years in England in the 1870s through his growing influence and reputation to iconic status in the 1950s. These works are accompanied by paintings by British artists that affected him and which he in turn inspired. The publication looks at van Gogh's time in Britain in his early twenties (1873-6), investigating his experience of the largest city in the world and the ideas, books, paintings and prints which caught his attention. These came to the fore in new ways in the following decade when van Gogh became an artist, and reading and the collecting of prints and illustrations informed both his ideals and his practical investigations of a radical, egalitarian style. After his move to France, van Gogh's earlier preoccupations were woven into his wider experience and his dramatically original late works. Van Gogh's brief participation in the cosmopolitan art scene in Paris brought him into contact with British-based painters and collectors who were some of the first to respond to his work, but its full impact came in the twentieth century. The publication focuses on the first displays of van Gogh's work before the First World War and the establishment of his reputation following the war, and then on the Second World War and its aftermath, when the artist's life and work became renowned as an embodiment of embattled human creativity. Essays by leadng experts will explore how van Gogh's work became such an inspiration to modern British artists in the twentieth century, from Sickert to Bacon. EDITOR

Surrealism, Dadaism, Musique Concrete: Three Manifestos
The major strains of thought in the worlds of avant garde art and music were influenced by the writings of these three pioneering and revolutionary thinkers. Andre Breton penned The Surrealist Manifesto in 1924, setting the art world on its ear with his philosophy of chance occurrences, strange juxtapositions and dream-logic, as a furtherance of a new and more vital art. Hugo Ball, one of the masterful renegades behind the DADA art movement, penned his manifesto to rebellion and absurdism in 1916, as a protest to the inhuman and barbaric war being raged across the face of the world. Finally, radical Futurist composer Luigi Russolo, who began recording lavatory noises as a droning, ambient form of music, laid out his philosophy of noise composition in his revolutionay and classic piece, The Art of Noises (1914), which predates the rise of electronic music and industrial music by many decades. Bold, illuminating, and provocative, these timeless intellectual offerings are presented here for the modern reader.

Gothic Imagination in Latin American Fiction and Film
This work traces how Gothic imagination from the literature and culture of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Europe and twentieth-century US and European film has impacted Latin American literature and film culture. Serrano argues that the Gothic has provided Latin American authors with a way to critique a number of issues, including colonization, authoritarianism, feudalism, and patriarchy. The book includes a literary history of the European Gothic to demonstrate how Latin American authors have incorporated its characteristics but also how they have broken away or inverted some elements, such as traditional plot lines, to suit their work and address a unique set of issues. The book examines both the modernistas of the nineteenth century and the avant-garde writers of the twentieth century, including Huidobro, Bombal, Rulfo, Roa Bastos, and Fuentes. Looking at the Gothic in Latin American literature and film, this book is a groundbreaking study that brings a fresh perspective to Latin American creative culture.

POLINA MIRETSKY ikebana and poetry
This book is a celebration of Polina Miretsky's versatile art, created mostly in the last ten years of her life. After her retirement, Polina studied Ikebana with some of the best masters of the Sogetsu school. From the very beginning, her participation in numerous exhibitions of the New York City Sogetsu Chapter demonstrated a tendency to depart from classical norms, moving towards innovative, personal expression. This book contains about thirty photographs of her extraordinary Ikebana sculptures. Polina also wrote outstanding poetry. The following small cycle of poems is written in the classical style of the early twentieth century. These poems are filled with penetrating beauty and a heartfelt sadness inherent in existence.
